What is your teaching philosophy?
Find the method that fits with the student; every individual is different, and there is a solution for every situation!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Get to know their learning style, typical struggles and strong suits.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can demonstrate the way I think about academic topics and explain the problem-solving mindset that I have adopted as an independent learner myself.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I would pick a fun, yet still educational, activity to do at the end of an assignment, such as a song or a poem (if the topic was a language).
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I would be patient and try many different teaching methods to evoke the best learning possible.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
Read aloud with them and pause to explain how I can notice when something is important or should be taken note of and how I would make these notes alongside the text.
